Banned within the European Union's borders in 2009, animals today still endure painful tests for cosmetics in the United States, Brazil and China -- cosmetics that are sold in the EU. That's why as of 2013, the EU voted to ban the sale of all animal-tested cosmetics. But now that ban is under threat.
We urgently need your support. Act now and urge the EU to keep their promise: sign our Cruelty-Free 2013 petition today!
Right now, European authorities are considering introducing legislation that could delay the long-awaited sales ban -- perhaps by years. As the largest global market for cosmetics, a ban on selling animal-tested cosmetics in the EU would force international cosmetic companies to choose between their products being pulled from shelves in Europe or kicking their animal testing habit -- a major step toward a global end to animal testing for beauty products.
We must to act quickly and remind EU decision makers that caring consumers want cosmetics shelves in Europe cruelty free -- a crucial step toward ending cosmetics cruelty worldwide.
